What is a rules light RPG?

RPG stands for Role Playing Game, a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting. Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making regarding character development. "Rules light" just means there are not that many rules you need to learn.

You will role play as one character. You'll learn a bit about that character and then build whatever backstory you think fits. It will be your job throughout the game to decide what that character does. Whenever you try to do something, you may have to roll a dice to see how successful you are. For example, if you want to swim across a river, you will roll a 20-sided die (d20) to see whether or not you make it across. Rolling a 20 would probably mean that you make it across.
